The waters within Voyageurs National Park have receded in some areas of the park allowing park staff to repair and clean previously closed campsites and trails. The following areas will reopen starting Monday, July 21, 2014. Kabetogama Lake:
Happy Landing (K11) continues to be closed through August 1, 2014 due to eagles nesting
Hammer Bay South closed through the 2014 season due to necessary long term repairs
Sand Point Lake:
All day use
The waters on Rainy Lake continue daily to recede. However, water levels are still two to three feet above park docks so campsites with docks remain closed until further notice. Please note, there are over 130 small and large campsites and houseboat sites open and ready for visitors on Rainy Lake!
Visitors who wish to rebook reservations for campsites or backcountry boat rentals may do so starting July 21, 2014 at www.recreation.gov.
